The picture book “serves as a hilarious how-to on coaching your kiddie to show Dad some love, with cows, sheep, horses and mice prompting their pint-sized mini-me's to say, ‘Dada,’” People magazine reported.

“This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by a celebrity,” Fallon, 40, told the magazine. The book will hit book shelves on June 9, 2015. 

Fallon and his wife welcomed Winnie Rose Fallon into their family last year. Fallon's proudly shown off his daughter in numerous Instagram pictures since her arrival.


This summer, Fallon described the joy he felt becoming a dad after a five-year struggle with infertility, saying "my life has never been this cool."
